Velveeta is vegan right? There’s no way dairy products stay that shelf stable for that long. I’ll admit I’ve been cheating by adding extra Parmeesian cheese on top of the Velveeta Shells & Cheese, but I’m still not convinced the Velveeta itself is dairy. Weird kinda gross, but super convenient, American industrial by product, sure. But dairy, how exactly?

@max Kraft Foods lists Velveeta's ingredients as: milk, water, whey, milk protein concentrate, milkfat, whey protein concentrate, sodium phosphate, and 2% or less of salt, calcium phosphate, lactic acid, sorbic acid, sodium citrate, sodium alginate, enzymes, apocarotenal, annatto, and cheese culture

@max Making dairy more shelf-stable was why cheese was invented in the first place.

@apLundell Then why is the cheese aisle refrigerated? QED 😼
